Does Azalea Blooms Once a Year?

Pink color of Azalea flower

Azaleas are found abundant in Japan, China and Korea, then brought to and grow well in American southern states such as Louisiana, Texas, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi. Few of my neighbors and I have planted Azaleas (Rhododendron sp) in our yards.

Colors of Azalea flower are mainly white and pink (close or tend to red). The flowers usually blooming in February. Unfortunately, beautiful flowers fell off (dried up) soon, around March. Length of blooming no more than 4 weeks, very short of time period in my opinion.

Our Azalea just bloom once a year. Luckily, the Azaleas have bloomed for 6 consecutive years in our backyard. So beautiful. I love white than pink.

I read an article that varieties called “Encore azaleas” developed in the 1800’s could bloom twice a year, in the summer and fall. The man who developed this varieties was Robert Lee from state of Louisiana.

Lovely white flower

We fertilized Azalea at least twice a year, before blooming around the end of January and after blooming. The timing to fertilize azalea after blooming could be in the middle of summer or early fall. There are many brand names for plant fertilizer in the commercial market. You may choose whatever you want.

We use commercial “Miracle-Gro” as our plant food. It is said this brand name is suitable for plant which produces flowers such as Azaleas, dogwoods, camellias, gardenias, magnolias and orchids.

Do you know Azalea? What color of flowers do you like?

  10. I don't have any Azaleas in my garden but I do like them. It's a shame because they would look so good in the flower beds. Perhaps I should get someone to plant some for me.

  11. I love them, they are so pretty, we had some at out last house so tried to grow them here too but with no luck, we think it has to do with the type of soil we have here

  12. What wonderful photographs. I have Azaleas in our gardens. Their flowers don't last long though with the wind and rain and living on the coast. I fed all my borders with pelleted poultry manure a few weeks ago. I also make my own garden teas with nettles, animal manure, grass clippings and seaweed..?

  13. Gorgeous pictures of the Azaleas!!! I don't think we grow Azaleas here in the Arizona Desert, and I don't thing I've seen them up in the Minneapolis area (summer home) either. I love watching the Augusta Masters at this time of year to just see the blooming Azaleas...breath taking. Hydrangeas and peonies are my summer favorites.

  15. The azaleas around here are in full bloom. I have a neighbor who has gorgeous ones. His trick is to put pine needles around the plants every fall. It seems to work.
